It’s kind of fitting though, my blind faith, these feelings. There are so many things in this book that can’t be easily explained, things that Natalie knows and feels are real, but are too impossible to be so.
I loved so much about this. Pretty much everything. I loved Natalie and her feistiness, her typical high school search for self. I found her really relatable and that she reacted logically to things that were happening to her.
I loved her friendship with Megan, such a loyal friend who trusted and believed Natalie wholeheartedly no matter how crazy she sounded. I loved Natalie’s family, they were a mix of characters but they all had each other’s backs when it counted. There are some really strong bonds in the book between friends and family and I really liked how it all came together.
The science and information about the dreams and hallucinations and brain function was very thorough but easy to understand. It was a great balance of supporting information so you know it’s accurate, but not too much so that it’s weighing things down and taking away from the story or making it too much about that phenomena.
There was a point of conflict for me, though. Something that kind of interfered with my non stop love — that being the usual instalove. It was strong with this one, considering the majority of the book is based on this love. BUT, I actually really liked Natalie and Beau and I absolutely LOVED where this story went, so I’m letting this slide and still going with my 5-star rating because wow, that ending.
No spoilers, but within the last quarter of the book, the pieces finally started coming together for me (big plus, it wasn’t easy to decipher it all right from the start) and I was just so super excited about it. As reasoning unraveled and the whole thing was laid out for us, not only was it written so well and clear and concise, it was just an awesome concept that I really, really loved.
This book was exactly what I was expecting and hoping it would be. It had beautiful writing, great well rounded characters, lots of strong messages about high school and guilt and blame, a wicked smart ending and, frankly, an epic love that literally split the world. I loved it.

The Love That Split the World has such an incredible concept! It is all about time travel. However, this book isn’t the typical time travel book where the characters travel the world and experience many different centuries. This novel focuses on one location and slowly brings in the element of time travel. This is such a refreshing way to incorporate travelling through time in a story.
Also, the main character, Natalie, in The Love That Split the World is so incredibly lovable. She is a very strong and doesn’t freak out too much over the fact that her whole world is changing. Another enjoyable aspect about Natalie is the fact that she is Native American. This is a real rarity in YA and I appreciate the diverse character that Henry has created. The cultural aspects in the book are so lovely and enlightening. For instance, Natalie’s grandmother’s stories of how the world was formed are so richly and wonderfully told. This was just such an interesting and unique piece in an already incredible book.
The writing in The Love That Split the World is just so beautiful! Emily Henry describes time travel in a way that seems very logical to the reader. As Natalie begins realizing what is happening, more concepts are explained. Henry leaves no blanks and does not leave her readers questioning. It is incredible how Emily Henry is able to explain such a complicated idea so well that it makes perfect sense. This is what sets this book apart from so many others. Sometimes when reading about time travel, it is difficult to piece things together and with this book things just seem to flow.
The Love That Split the World is a unique time travel book with a diverse and very brave main character. This book is so well-written and filled with perfect explanations that help the reader understand exactly what is going on. Even those who aren’t fans of time travel will undoubtedly appreciate this book as it is so original and eloquent.
